"The ultimate aim of this study was to elucidate the mechanism of formation of tetraphenylethylene from benzhydryl chloride and potassium t-butoxide in dimethyl sulfoxide. The development of a suitable technique for following the reaction rate and of an analytical method to determine the extent of the reaction became an important object in this project"--Introduction, page 2.
